Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well the menu system I am finding a little difficult to navigate compared to the Sony as there are fewer words, all icons!
Also the LCD is not as hi-res but all things I knew.
Cracking size...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well I've only had time for a wee play with it buy very impressed so far, although I think I will be buying the 9-18mm shortly as I want a bit wider angle!

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well looks live I've just ordered an E620, 14-42 and 14-54mm lens, don't really need the 40-150 at the mo and I'm sure I can get one cheaply if I need.

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Sony crop is 1.5, been working out the equivalent focal lengths, I'm not too bothered about the wide angle, Oly would be 18mm or 22mm 35mm equivalent v 15mm on the Sony so not a massive difference.

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

I'm looking into how I would replace my kit lineup with Olympus equivalents, so to replace my 17-70 I would be looking at 14-42 or 14-54, for a wide angle either a new 9-18 or very tempted by the...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Ok, looking at potential body/lens combos.
Now the twin kit of E620, 14-42 and 40-150 look good but would the 14-54 be a major step up in image quality?

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Basically are Olympus lenses better than the low end/cheap/non pro Sony lenses?

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Been taking another think today, I feel that my A700 is being held back by not being able to afford uber expensive Carl Zeiss and Sony lenses, am I right in thinking that for example a 11-22 or...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well sadly I think I am going to have to stay with the Sony just now, having worked out the costs of changing over the the E620 and buying another lens I can't afford it at the moment :(

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Thanks Ian, just comparing the costs / benefits between keeping my A700 and adding lenses, or making the switch to Olympus.
Reckon I would go for the E620 twin lens kit (14-42 + 40-150), add a 25mm...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Another more general query, I found problems when buying square filters for some of my Sony stuff due to the size, I'm guess that for Olympus lenses the vast majority would be alright with 85mm...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Thanks Ian, I will take a look at that, I am very interested in the E620, and I think its added portability would probably outweigh the D90's extra lowlight capability.
What would be the cheapest...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well I've just been in Jessops and had a play with both the E620 and E30, they didn't know anything abou a special on the 40-150 in fact they didn't even seem to realize the price of the E-30!

Yep we're both "over there" too! I'm just heading into Jessops to give the E-620 and E-30, I know the E-30 is only 699 but I'm leaning toward te E-620 either body only and then buying the 12-60 or...

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

I should give that a go, see if they'll throw in the 40-150! Is the e-30 that much smaller than your D700?

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Thanks Peter, I may also consider the Sigma 10-20, I had one for my A700 and was very impressed although I know it wouldn't be quite as wide with the 2x crop factor on the Olympus.

Well I am...
